Drupal - Use Drush to Export/Import a MySQL Database Dump File

Export Database to File

So today I wanted to learn how to export a Drupal database to a file quickly. Back in the day I would've logged in through cPanel and navigated to PHPMyAdmin, then manually select an export of the database and have to choose where to save the file.

  1. go into your drupal database
  2. go into the 'variable' table
  3. sort by the 'name' column ascending order
  4. look for any variable names beginning with 'cron_' and delete them

Here are some MySQL queries that should get the job done:
